View Full Version : Why can't I send PM's

10-22-2002, 06:52 PM
I want to reply to a PM, but there is no reply button. It was working fine a few hours ago. Is it just me?

I want to send a PM but there is no compose PM button....

I had to turn the PM feature off for the time being. There was a Bozo spamming PM advertisements. If anyone gets a regular email from him, please get in touch. If I get his IP address, I can keep him from getting into the forum and turn the PMs back on.

Sorry about that,

Bruce, please turn the PM feaure back on as soon as possible. Some of us will go crazy without it. /ubbthreads/images/icons/crazy.gif

The key is getting the IP address of the moron sending the PMs. It can be gotten out of normal email messages. If anyone gets an email message from this guy, forward it on to me with full-header information. There is probably a way to get it out of this forum application too, but I can\'t figure it out. If anyone is familiar with UBB Threads, get in touch.

Being as I get tons of spam daily...can you give us something to go on as far as what we\'re looking for specifically from this guy you\'re wanting? Any particular product he\'s pushing, or any particular user name we should look for? Otherwise, if he sends me something it won\'t stick out in my mind above all the other spam, and I\'ll just end up deleting it without knowing it\'s the spammer you\'re interested in.

Yeah, because it seems a real triall to have to go without being able to speak with your friends on the forum, if you know what I mean.....

This guy advertises a (scam) site where they sell \"blue apc\". He told me it is three times the concentration of APC. He is asking people to become a reseller.

Yes, Red, I know exactly what you mean. I was thinking the same thing. It really would be a real triall. /ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif

I wondered if that were intentional...

That is the guy. The guy has about 3 working brain cells. First he writes and says: \"Hi, how are you?\" Then if you respond to that he writes back with the URL of his website selling \"Blue APC\" and encourages you to become a reseller.

Tell me I\'m not good!
Didn\'t I know it?!

10-23-2002, 04:05 PM
He didn\'t ask me, must have realised that I am to intelligent and honerable to do something like that. /ubbthreads/images/icons/laugh.gif

Hello All,
I just turned the feature back on. Let me know if the pinhead returns.
Sorry about the trouble,

Just tried PMing you and the forum said that you were not accepting PMs. Just checked my settings and saw that mine was off. I don\'t remember turning it off.

10-28-2002, 09:03 PM
Did you mean to turn that off?
Anyone else having problems with the PMs?

10-29-2002, 06:02 AM
I also tried to PM you several times and received the same message. I wasn\'t sure if you turned it off because you preferred people to use your email instead. I know that my PM\'s have been working fine.

10-29-2002, 08:26 AM
HEY! I wondered where everybody had been! I didn\'t turn my pm\'s off -- can\'t imagine how that happened.

I just turned them back on - thanks for letting me know.
